Previously, it was observed that even a restrained werewolf would end up with injuries during the full moon as a result of the attempts made to keep them in line.

 Each clinic aims to operate at a 2 staff : 1 patient ratio, with additional staff and physicians on call in case of an incident. This ensures that each patient receives the proper care at all times, as well as continuous checkups on their current physical state. Nurses are also encouraged to interact with the patients that are awake, as positive interaction can be both soothing and reassuring. Security is hired by the City to ensure the safety of both the staff and the patients. Each clinic aims to operate at a 2 staff : 1 patient ratio, with additional staff and physicians on call in case of an incident.
